I have three kitchen items that I use almost daily (aside from my stove/oven, of course!) - food processor, kitchenaide mixer, and my micro-cooker. The micro-cooker is the easiest and fastest way to cook/steam my vegetables and it leaves my veggies with a flavor that surpasses stove-top steaming. The best part? I do not have to add any water; simply add your vegetables, slide on lid and press the vegetable button on your microwave.

I also venture out of the vegetable group and make a super fast breakfast! Three eggs, a little bit of coconut milk (I've also used almond milk OR coconut butter - mmm), whisk, slide top on and cook for 5 minutes. Delicious and the micro-cooker is a breeze to clean.

I have cooked my sweet potatoes and add coconut milk or coconut butter and mash without using another bowl. Perfect post-wod fuel!

I had some leftover grass-fed ground beef (raw) and decided to put in the cooker with chopped bell peppers, chopped carrots,tomato sauce, some spices and cooked for 5-8 mins. and had a tasty and filling lunch. Amazingly, the meat does not have to be thawed prior to cooking. You are also able to cook fish and vegetables together in this micro-cooker.

I would be interested in hearing what others have cooked in this thing, since I know there are several of you that mentioned you use it.

Post to comments and let me know!


  1. Where do you get one of these cool gadgets?


  2. Pampered Chef - I believe Christina @ WCF is still a Pampered Chef rep. That's where I got mine. I wished I would have purchased the larger one though, keep that in mind. I use mine frequently.
